5.0 out of 5 stars The Return of a Latin Diva January 25, 2002
Format:Audio CD
If there is one name synonymous with the freestyle movement of the 1980s, that name would be Safire. Born Wilma Cosme to Puerto Rican parents in New York City, Safire was one of the first Latinas to really make a mark in popular club music due to her style and vocals. However, when times change, so do taste, and Safire almost disappeared off the map when the freestyle movement started to fizzle in the early 1990s.
"Bringing Back the Groove" is Safire's first English-language album in more than a decade. After briefly experimenting with Salsa music during most of the 1990s (like many freestyle divas of past such as Brenda K. Starr and India) Safire released this album which features a various versions of several of her hits. While I can't classify this album as having original material, it is the only album out on the market that contains Safire's English-language tracks.
"Thinking of You," a slow, yet beautiful love song, "Boy I've Been Told" (written by salsa/pop sensation Marc Anthony), and "Gonna Make It," are all freestyle anthems not only covered on this compilation in their original versions, but also in several remixed versions. My favorite versions are this album include Ricky Gonzalez's Salsa Mix of "Thinking Of You," and Choco's Old School Mix of another Safire hit, "Let Me Be The One." The first version captures Safire's hit song with a flavorful, salsa beat that will appeal to many of her Latin fans, which the latter sounds like it was remixed in today's club styles to attract a new legion of fans.
This album is a must have for any who loves freestyle! The memories it brought of me growing up in New York City are priceless and can never be relived.

5.0 out of 5 stars NYC LATIN CLASSIC FREESTYLE!!!!! February 13, 2002
By MC
Format:Audio CD
THIS IS FOR ALL THE PEOPLE WHO ARE THE HUNT FOR 80'S DANCE WITH A LATIN TWIST. SAFIRE IS GREAT, THE BEATS ARE SO RAW ESPECIALLY "DONT BREAK MY HEART" REMIXED BY TONY MORAN, FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DO NOT KNOW WHO TONY MORAN IS?, HE IS ONE OF THE "ORIGINAL LATIN RASCALS", THE WORLD FAMOUS DJ CREW FROM NYC IN THE MID TO EARLY 80'S(98.7 KISS FM). THERE WERE MANY GREAT GROUPS AND ARTIST THAT EMERGED WITH THE NEW FREESTYLE SOUND IN THE MID 80'S BUT SAFIRE REMAINED AT THE TOP WITH HITS LIKE "BOY I'VE BEEN TOLD", "GONNA MAKE IT", "DONT BREAK MY HEART", AND MANY MORE. MANY OF SAFIRE'S JAMS WERE MIXED ON CHICAGO'S OWN WBMX 102.7 BACK IN THE 80'S, AND WERE MOSTLY PUMPED IN THE DISCOS. THIS IS GREAT CD TO PURCHASE FOR THE FREESTYLE COLLECTION!

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Dance CD May 14, 2002
By Donna
Format:Audio CD
Safire is one of the best acts to come out of the latin dance movement of the 80's & 90's. I have seen her more recently and she is as beautiful as ever! Her new cd updates several of her billboard pop & dance hits to fit into todays club scene. This girl is just as popular today as she has been for the last 15 years - she gives a electrifying stage show. Hightlights of her cd are her new version of her big pop & dance crossover hit "boy ive been told" , i swear this sounds better than the original, "eyes of a stranger" and her slammin house version of "let me be the one" - i look forward to her next project and i'm sure it won't disappoint me.

SaFire is pulls out all the spots with this one! By reinventing some of her earlier hits, she makes it possible for people who never heard her name before...know it now and NEVER forget it! I loved her when she first came out, and STILL do. ROCK ON SaFire!

4.0 out of 5 stars She deserves to be a STAR again!! November 29, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Not that she isnt already. what an incredible mix of her classic music. at the peak of her career, SAFIRE entered the billboard 100 charts 6 times, with her dance hits like "boy ive been told" and her pop smash ballad "thinking of you". she is definately one of the stars of the freestyle/dance/pop movement, she stands out among all freestyle/dance artists. she's got the voice, style, attitude. and what a great new cd, all her dance classics with an updated beat. IT WORKS!! i've followed her career since day 1, and she still continues to amaze me! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HER!
